The (ex-)KKers on the Review board completely ignored and excluded the wishes and desires of the Modern (Revived Late) Cornish speakers who in their pre-SWF orthographies only wrote ‹h› and never ‹gh›. Writing word final and pre-consonantal ‹gh› was a compromise on their (our) part, and the return to the overly mediaevalist intervocalic ‹gh› spellings is a further slap in the face of the Modern Cornish users.
